Renowned for its amazing skiing, Park City has long been a popular spot for visitors looking to hit the slopes. But this gorgeous mountain town, just 35 minutes from the Salt Lake City Airport, is a fantastic year-round destination for everyone.
Combining the natural beauty of the surrounding Wasatch Mountains with a picturesque Main Street, world-class festivals, a great selection of restaurants and bars, and plenty of options for outdoor fun, Park City has everything you need for the perfect getaway.
“I like to say that Park City has a small-town vibe with big city access since there’s so much to do here,” says Brittany, our Park City Destination Manager. “It’s very laid-back and friendly even with all of the upscale resorts and amenities.”
If you’re looking to relax and unwind or get out and play, our concierge team will plan an amazing, personalized Park City vacation. We’ve rounded up some of Brittany’s top recommendations to create a perfect three-day itinerary – with fresh air and amazing mountain views included.
Day One: From Mountain to Main Street
Start your first day in Park City with coffee or breakfast on your home’s private, rooftop deck. It’s a great place to wake up while taking in the breathtaking landscape.
Once you’re up and ready to go, head to Park City Mountain for a full morning of outdoor fun. Your options will be different depending on when you visit, but everything here is geared towards adventure and exploration.
In summer, take the lift to the top of the mountain and spend the morning mountain biking, hiking, or enjoying any of the other fun outdoor activities they offer, including a 3,000-foot long alpine slide, golfing, and more, all of which can be booked for you by your concierge.
In winter, skiers and snowboarders can experience thrilling runs on the mountain’s many powder-soft vertical trails or keep things slow and gentle at High Meadow Park, the resort’s beginner’s area, all conveniently located and easy to get to from your Equity Estates home.
“One of the best things about this home is its location!” says Brittany. “You’re only a block from most shops and restaurants in downtown Park City, and the Park City Mountain Town Lift is located at the end of our block to go straight up the mountain for hiking or skiing in the winter.”
After lunch, walk over to historic Main Street to really get a sense of life in Park City. Here you can window shop, pick up some souvenirs, or just take in the sights. Check out the exhibits at Meyer Gallery or Park City Fine Art, grab a coffee and browse the books at the cozy Atticus Coffee, Books & Teahouse, stop by Park City Mercantile, or visit the Park City Museum to learn more about the city’s history and heritage. There’s enough to see and do here to fill the entire afternoon.
To wrap up the day, let your Personal Travel Concierge make dinner reservations for you at one of the excellent Main Street restaurants. Chimayo, specializing in southwestern cuisine, and Grappa, featuring rustic Italian fare, are two of our favorites.
Day Two: Olympic Park or Fly-Fishing
Keep the action going on day two with a visit to Utah Olympic Park. Built for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, this 400-acre venue is home to a multitude of year-round, family-friendly activities. Try out their rope courses, zipline tours, extreme tubing, and summer bobsled experiences. And make sure to visit the 2002 Winter Games Museum.
If you’d prefer a more low-key outdoor activity, how about a guided fly-fishing trip on one of Park City’s nearby rivers? Lunch, snacks, and drinks are provided for the full-day excursions. Best of all, the fishing here is excellent in every season.
After a day out, take some time to relax back at the chalet with refreshing drinks on the rooftop deck or with a massage at the nearby Aura Spa and Boutique. Then let us make reservations for you at Fletchers on Main Street or arrange for a private chef to come in and cook dinner for you at the home.
Day Three: Sundance, Shopping, and More
On day three, venture out of Park City to explore Sundance, home of the world-famous annual film festival, stopping at the pretty Jordanelle Reservoir on the way, and enjoy the drive through the scenic Heber Valley area as well. At Sundance, check out the scenic chair lifts, offering panoramic views of the mountain as you glide to the top of Ray’s Summit, enjoy a guided waterfall hike to Stewart Falls, and learn more about Robert Redford’s film history. Follow the fun with lunch at the delicious Foundry Grill, offering farm-to-table dishes and indoor and outdoor dining.
End your day back in Park City with another stroll down Main Street – which is even lovelier at night – and dinner reservations at the top-rated Riverhorse on Main, Brittany’s favorite Park City restaurant. Their menu of eclectic American cuisine rotates seasonally but offers one-of-a-kind meals like local rainbow trout or a trio of wild game served alongside a buffalo tartare or lamb lollipops.
“Riverhorse is amazing! It’s got great ambiance and food, and they have live music some nights as well,” she says. “It’s a great way to wrap up three days in Park City.”
